Deaths seems like a regular platformer game but makes use of a very interesting idea. Everytime a player dies the position gets stored in an online database. When you enter a level, the latest deaths (from all over the world) are loaded in and you can see bodyparts lying around where people died. These bodyparts can be used as hints to spot dangers, and even as objects to walk on. Sometimes, you'll literally need other people's deaths to progress.
The game is an experimental concept with 6 levels.
A rather interesting concept with almost a form of coop.
